I’ve Had a Stomachache for 50 Years

At least now I know why.

Yesterday, I had my first ever colonoscopy. And an endoscopy, too.

Which means that I spent all day the day before emptying my body completely — by way of an entire bottle of Miralax mixed in what felt like my body weight in Gatorade. And four doses of Dulcolax.



“Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do, so throw off the bowlines, sail away from safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore, Dream, Discover.” —  Mark Twain
